Family owned and run by the Roberts Family since 1979, Connemara Smokehouse is the oldest smokehouse in Connemara and one of the oldest in Western Ireland. It is one of the few remaining smokehouses still specialising in smoking wild Atlantic salmon. Connemara Smokehouse perches atop Bunowen Pier, above the waves of the Atlantic and at the very edge of west Connemara. The castle ruins of the pirate queen Granuaile (Grace O’Malley, in English) overlook the smokehouse from across the harbour below the Hill of Doon, while the moody peaks of the Twelve Bens look out over the castle and smokehouse to the green islands scattered across Ballyconneely Bay.

Smokehouse Tours are operated seasonally during the summer months June, July and August only on Wednesdays at 3pm. Booking is advisable. On the Smokehouse Tour you will watch Graham or Nicolas hand fillet and traditionally prepare the salmon, explain the salting and smoking techniques, then show the hand slicing and packing of the finished product. You will also enjoy a tasting of the freshly smoked salmon and be able to buy the products in the shop.
